Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

If you have an old motor/bearing assembly type pump (see pic of red pump (typical) then a noisy start up is probably a sign of an impending failure. If it looks just like the one in the pic then it may be repairable. If you have a cartridge type pump (pic of green pump is typical of the style) then there may just be some debris caught in the pump. Either way it's best to have it checked out before a possible failure.
